Our students lost in the Great War

We found this document while looking for some records related to the University’s high country lands. It is a list of Canterbury College students who laid down their lives in the Great War.

This Roll of Honour shows the degrees of the graduates marked against their names.

The list is mainly correct but letters attached to the roll suggest a few names were missed off the roll. One such name was William Carnegie Lyall who had passed through the College and was killed in action in 1918.
